A resolute Sunderland left Emirates Stadium with a point on Saturday as Arsenal missed the chance to close the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester United to just one point.

But with United losing to Liverpool on Sunday, the result didn’t prove as costly as first feared.

Next up for Arsène Wenger’s side is the small matter of Barcelona in the Champions League and the manager stressed the importance on responding well when he spoke to TV Online after Saturday’s game

He discussed:

  • a well-organised Sunderland side
  • missing key players up front
  • Andrey Arshavin's disallowed goal
  • the Russian's penalty shout
  • lacking some creativity
  • a missed opportunity at home
  • focusing on Barcelona
